Praise the bridge that carried you over

I have long since learned that most people like, dare I say love, to be appreciated.  Sometimes a simple “thank you” will suffice while other times a bigger gesture is needed.  Today I put the fingers to the keys to

15 years ago I was made into the best and most illustrious sisterhood, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc in the Lambda Psi Chapter chartered on the campus of the University of Florida with 65 of the most dynamic and divastating women. From 2003 to now every moment of this journey, from reactivating our chapter to serving as our sisters keeper and prayer warrior, has solidified and fortified why I chose Delta and why every day she continues to choose me. Happy DeltaVersary to my line sisters of ROTD, love each and every one of you! Thank you for selecting, molding and continuing to inspire us to all of our prophytes of @lambdapsidivas and @dstinc1913! And... All of my love to all of the sorors who have come after us. We are the 41 on this line, you may know me as Tanyah B, but I will forever be DKA Tussin and Big Sister Too Much! Looking forward to celebrating 15 years in Jamaica with my ROTD! #LovelyLambdaPsi #ΛΨMade #Spring03 #ROTD #Root66 #deltasigmatheta #dst1913 #UFAlumni #GoGators
Happy Birthday @ms_new_lee, one of my absolute favorite people. You have a true spirit that helps make everyone around you better, at least I know I am a better more self-loving and caring person because of you. Thank you for always being there for me, helping to celebrate my wins and pushing me to do better when the firey Aries ram comes out. I am so very proud of all that you have and will continue to achieve and especially appreciate the powerful messages you share. It was nice spending a little part of our birthday celebration together. I love you beyond the stars!!! #HappyBirthday #SisterFrands #myhitta
@dstinc1913: The members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. mourn the loss of anti-apartheid activist, human rights leader and the first Black female social worker in South Africa, Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. She is and will always be a shining example of the #PowerInOurVoice. #activist #legend #dst1913

Happy Trans Day of Visibility! Until all can walk freely as our authentic selves, none of us are free. Today I shout with you because every day I see you. I walk with you in this fight to be your true whole authentic self, especially all Trans People of Color. You are worthy of equal access to justice, love, marriage, employment, housing, restrooms, military service, health care, religious observation, education and so much more. 💗💙 #TDOV2018 #transgender #transpoc #Ally #iamanally
Mood: grateful. Certainly needed this covering and reminder today. The enemy will use even the most unexpected person to try and sabotage, but God’s will, blessings and covering will prevail. Give it over to him, walk away and keep living your calling! #Faithfilled #HolyWeek #NotTodaySatan #GoodVibesOnly
Our present. Our Future. They will see us, hear us, and know our stories! Representation and visibility matter. #blackgirlmagic #EnoughisEnough #marchforourlives #teachthebabies
